NFL Mock Draft 2012: ESPN's Todd McShay Feels Brock Osweiler Could Be A First Round Pick

As college football players from around the country prepare to hopefully play on Sundays next year, ESPN has Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. arguing with one another as to where these proverbial pieces might fall in the 2012 NFL Draft.

One player that is causing some discord between the two is Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler, who will forego his senior season in Tempe and enter a draft full of quality QB's like Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Arizona's Nick Foles. Some felt this was a bad move for Oswieler, but as McShay explains, he could work his way into the first round:

"Brock Osweiler, the more tape I watch out of him coming out of Arizona State, the more impressed I am with him," McShay said. "He's got a unique delivery and he's not very fundamentally sound yet, but he's got unbelievable physical tools and he's a very good leader. I think he could move into that first round."

He'll have some work to do in the upcoming months to improve his stock, but with his physical atributes Oswieler could make a big move up the big board.
